Welcome Lucerna Planta!

Plant-based soy candles, fragrances inspired by boss ladies. Handcrafted in Charleston, SC.

Charleston-based, female-owned brand Lucerna Planta crafts soy candles in signature scents inspired by real women in founder Ali Miller's Life. Their stories have been synthesized down to a few relatable sentences - sentences that are meant to inspire the person on the receiving end to be bolder, braver + happier.


When a buyer purchases a candle, 20% of the proceeds are donated to a non-profit that was selected by the female inspiration; a non-profit that aligns with that candle's core intention. 

For example, the Lucerna Planta candle “PHILANTHROP-CHIC” gives back to organization The Green Chair Project, a NC-based non-profit that repurposes donated furniture.


Lucerna Planta’s FIVE unique candles are currently available at The COMMUNITY, including:

  • BOHEMIA: plumeria, peony, musk, and peppercorn

  • DEFENDRESS: white ginger, amber, jasmine, lily, orchids, and sea salt

  • SHE-EO: ozone, driftwood, citrus, and sea salt
